The best way to search for a module might be to get the full list at Rosedragon, save it as a text file, then search for the title or author. I had to do it that way to find the address of a design that was reviewed.  ;)

Cool, thanks :) I will try it next time when searching for a module :) Currently I am a bit disorented with my huge monitor :) everything looks so much different especialy pdf books, I can read them without any trouble :D, but DC doesn't look that good so it seems it will go on my old laptop :) though I am still hoping I will find a way to make it work in window but for now that doesn't seem possible.

Did you try Control Panel\Appearance and Personalization\Personalization\Display Settings?

You can lower the resolution for older games and other things.  :)

I didn't but I am not sure if it would change anything. I started DC in 640*480 resolution on my new monitor http://www.viewsoniceurope.com/uk/products/desktop-monitors/va2231waled.htm and well this thing is huge twcie as wide as my old one http://www.amazon.co.uk/Samsung-Syncmaster-753S-CRT-Monitor/dp/B0000719MZ which was actualy killing me as I stared in it for all day sometimes and it was really painful like having a TV 0,5m from my eyes :(, so now I have a really good monitor and it is relaxing to work on it for sure.

Anyway it is just to big for 640*480 resolution and I though about running DC in 1024*768 but as I am not sure how to do it I decided to play it on my old 486 PC Laptop which has problems sometimes running DC (as it is old and slow) but most of the time it can do it if I am not playing anything else on it like for example FRUA :)

So I tried searching for some programs to make DC working in window mode but nothing works on it and well :) if something could be done to make things better it would be cool to try it :D no ideas for now unfortunately.

My vote is definitely on three of James Rand modules: Hellbound:bloodwar, Blood and tears and some vanilla design about two old friends in Planescape universe (forgot the title). 

Also the whole Ravenloft series by Darius Whiteheart is a "must play" in my opinion.

If the issue is that it's stretched out (an issue I have with my widescreen monitor if I don't fix it), then you can go into the control panel of your graphics card and look for an option for 4:3 resolutions to keep the correct aspect ratio.  That will actually fix some of the issues.

As far as everything else, you'll get used to it.  I remember when I first got my widescreen monitor.  At first, it was hard adjusting.  Now, I would never got back to looking at things in a tiny box.  Just give it some time.

That would be "A War Story". Curiously enough, I think those are my least favorite by James Rand. I think I liked all the other ones by him better. :D But I might be mistaken about Hellbound, maybe I actually enjoyed that one.
